Bancroft Beer  |  2.5 / 4 / 6 

Our daily drinker, named after the street our humble brewery rests on. Brewed with 2-row and Maris Otter malt. Singularly hopped with Mosaic. Punch notes of Satsuma orange rind, lychee flesh, and fresh blueberry muffin, with a clean and crisp finish. 4.20% abv

Bancroft X  |  2.5 / 4 / 6 

An experimental batch of Bancroft Beer, fermented much warmer than usual with our house ale yeast. This change results in much higher ester production, which contributes unique tropical fruit notes not typically found in standard Bancroft Beer. Let us know what you think! 

Big Skipper  |  2.5 / 4 / 6 

Our First TIPA! Table IPA, brewed with 100% northwestern 2-row and a dash of cane sugar. Fermented extra warm with our house yeast for a more expressive profile. Hopped generously with Citra, Simcoe, and Mosaic. Juicy grapefruit spritzer, hints of mango, lightly dank, and incredibly refreshing in this sticky Philly summer heat. It’s a real treat. 2.6% abv

2000 Seasons  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Lil’ wheat IPA hopped solely with Nelson Sauvin. In further exploration of the limits we can push with our house ale yeast, we fermented this one at the highest temperature of it’s suggested range (quite warm at 77F) in order to coax out more expressive esters. Once fermentation was complete, dried chamomile flowers from our friends at Penn Herb Company were added along with the dry hop. The result is a delightfully tropical treat for these Philly summer days  packed with flavors of mini pineapples, coconut flesh, squishy nectarines, some new weed strain, and wafts of Garam Masala spices. Perfect sippy strength at 4.1% abv. Close your eyes and bask in the Bancroft Street Oasis

Mosaic Chief  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Baby West Coast IPA brewed in collaboration with our friends from Yakima Chief Hops, the biggest hop supplier out of the Pacific Northwest. This IPA features a new product in development designed to provide concentrated flavor and aroma in hop forward beers. We chose to showcase Mosaic, our favorite hoppy hop here at 2D that plays really well with our hard water profile. We built a multi grain base of malted barely, wheat, and oats, and then added a shit ton of Trial 702 Mosaic in the whirlpool. Once fermentation with our house ale yeast was complete, we then dry hopped it with 3+ lbs/bbl of more Mosaic. An absolute Mosaic bomb! Intense weedy aroma with a clean, dry, malt profile and then a very floral Mosaic experience in the flavor followed by more dank piney notes. We’re pleasantly enjoying the slightly different Mosaic profile brought out by the Trial 702. 4.8% abv

Pětite Pils  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Pětite Pils is a riff on our standard keller pils, Pět Pils. This Northern German leaning lil wünder was brewed with all continental pilsner malt and generous additions of Hallertauer Mittlefrüher and Tettnanger in the kettle. Brimming with light crackery malt, classic herbal spice, and waves of green tea, tall grass, and lemon verbena under rocky clouds of foam. Fermented low and slow with everyone’s favorite lager yeast. Crisp and clean. 3.8% abv

Pět Pils  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Pět, meaning “five” in Czech, honors the first batch of Pilsner ever brewed by Josef Groll on October 5th, 1842 which gave way to what has become the most popular and highly engineered beer style in the world. Czech Saaz hops and true Czech pilsner malt come together to make this unabashed, unfiltered, rustic Bohemian Pils. Lagered for many moons, this pils is filled with classic lightly bready malt notes under layers of herbal tea, spice, and a hint of Meyer lemon zest. 5% abv

Festbier  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

The return of Festbier! Our take on the local treat enjoyed during Oktoberfest in Munich. Brewed with pilsner and a bit of Vienna this year along with Hallertauer Mittlefrüher in the kettle. Fermented slow and cold with our house lager yeast and stored cold for two moons.  Bready loaves drizzled with wildflower honey, soft pretzel, with a dry spicy finish. Here’s to cooler days. Prost! 5% abv

Chadwick  |  3 / 4.5 / 7

Our OG Philly style porter brewed with a special blend of roasty malts over layers of 2-row, Munich, Vienna, and Maris Otter. Hopped with East Kent Goldings and fermented with our house ale strain. Rich notes of toffee, bitter sweet chocolate covered espresso beans, and that classic English Earl Grey tea finish. 6% abv.

The Glass is Always Greener (750mL bottle)  |  12

This lovely little grisette is brewed from a simple base of European pilsner malt and a little white wheat, with a blend of aged and fresh old world hop varietals. It then gets fermented with our favorite saison monoculture in one of our mixed fermentation tanks before being dry hopped with East Kent Goldings. Conditioned properly in the bottle to 3 volumes of c02. TGIAG is our ode to the classic green glass farmhouse ales of Belgium. It begins with a delicate floral malt base followed by layers of jasmine blossom, green tea, and lemon balm before a bone dry prickly mineral finish. It is dangerously quaffable. 5% abv

SIX (750mL bottle)  |  22

Sixth Anniversary blend of three barrels of Saison Ambre brewed in late 2020 from a simple base of German Pilsner malt with a dash of English chocolate malt. Hopped intently with aged Old World varietals. Fermented with our RAF mixed culture and aged in stainless for 9 months before being transferred over to oak wine barrels which previously held our PA Framboise, and then aged for another 18 months. The resulting blend is deep and complex, an almost gueuze-like aroma filled with persimmon and over ripe stone fruit. The flavor follows suite with layers of Autumnal petrichor and damp forest floor, antique wooden spice cubbards, tart cherries and apricots, followed up by a classic clean 2D minerality in the finish. 6.5% abv. We’re really excited to share this year’s blend with you!
